- The majority of the world is right-handed, that's why the majority of the world drives on the right. LHD
cars are made for right-handers because that arrangement allows the right hand to control more things, like the steering wheel, shifter, and all the various buttons. In the a LHD
car, your left hand hardly does any work-it just holds the steering wheel. That's why the pedals are on the left in both RHD and LHD
cars, since most people are right-footed. So the RHD layout makes no sense because you need left-handed control of your upper body, and right-footed control of your lower body. On LHD
cars, everything is controlled by the right.
BTW, I'm a left-hander, too
